Awhile back I mention on another post that I received a sample set of the 3 disc Monte from Al, at Kind Design Products. They were samples of what he would be making available in the USA. Well I emailed Al and asked him what was going on about the site opening of 3diskmonte.com. He told me he was changing the site name. Was adding more products, redoing the disc and they would be available very soon.

Al generously sent me a new set to review before he opens, to give him my opinions on the new disc, if I liked the new disc better than the first set he sent me.

I thought the first set he sent me were better than any other disc being made and really didn't need any improvements.

Well he out did himself.

The new disc is now all scratch resistant on both sides and will have a wide range of the embedded dot.

The disc set that Al sent me has an embedded brass like token with a four leaf clover that has good luck on it. This replaces the white dot. He also has the standard white dot and many other selections for a set.

The set I received came in a nice screw top can. You can get them in a bag, if you like.

He also has the smooth bottom disc, like the standard disc.

He told me his new site will be magicswindles.com. He will have other items like Cover the spot & etc.

So this is why the disc didn't come out as soon as he expected.

In my final opinion, these new all scratch resistant discs are well worth the wait.

All of Al’s products I have used or seen are high quality. He gave me a peek of the site and it is just like his shell site, a large selection of products to choose from.

Well I am now opening http://www.magicswindles.com that will offer the 3 Disk Monte and other magic swindle type games.

Benhart let the cat out of the bag. I have been getting a lot of emails from people that heard I was going to start making Disk Sets in the USA.

I have been supplying others already that know how to handle them and didn't need the video instructions. Mainly they have been from the UK.

Alaska has a big interest because of the weather there, as cards have a problem blowing away and the disks won’t.


The disks are finally where I am very happy with the new design. I have redesigned them a few times.

These disk sets bring many new features to perform this classic. The disks are now all Scratch Resistant on both sides of the disk and the marked disk has an embedded small disk.
These two main features bring a better looking and working disk to the table.

What does the textured scratch resistant surface on both sides of the disk bring to the table?
(a) Takes way the sliding of the disk after they are thrown to the surface.
(b) Both sides of the disks have a matching textured surface, even the marked embedded disk.
This will keep the disk scratch free and free from sliding.
© You are now able to use sleight of hand with the matching surface on the disks.
(Like a false turnovers)

What does the embedded marked disk bring to the table?
(a) Never need stickers or have to re-paint the dot like other disk.
(b) Textured surface to stop the disk from sliding on the surface.
(c) Larger selection for the marked disk.
(d) Mark disk inserts can be ordered in plastic or different metals.
(e) Metal mark disk inserts will give a slight weight difference to always know the winning disk location when mixing the disks around in play.

The disk sets are offered in two sizes; the standard 3” Disk and the 2” Pocket Disk.

The new pocket disk can be used in many different ways. They work well with the use of sleight of hand, like false turnovers or disk switch. As the two inch size disk makes it easy to do many coin type moves.

The other exciting new design is the “Disk Throwing Mats” I think the mat is one of the best new features.

The slide resistant fabric with the newspaper inside gives the perfect throwing surface.

You cannot find a better combination!

Features
* All slide resistant
* Adjustable surface on how you throw or what sound you want.
* Much cleaner, by not having any contact with the newspaper ink.
* Rolls up to carry with ease.
* Inside fully lined with Velcro that keeps the mat and the inside newspaper in place.
* Takes a standard double folded newspaper 11" x 5 1/2" that fits inside the Velcro frame and brings a
larger working throwing surface of 13" x 7".
* The disks standout with a better natural dimensional surface than the newspaper by itself.
* All the Velcro is machine sewn with heavy duty thread.

So for the ones that don't need instructions on how to handle the disks, they are now available.

Once the videos are done they will be available with a password to be viewed for anyone that has made a disk set purchase on the website.

If you have any question I will always be happy to reply.

Thank you,
